About a week ago, the names for a number of files on my computer turned blue. There doesn't seem to be any relation between all of them, they are all just random files.

Norton picked up a virus and said it took care of it the other day, but I think there was one that it couldn't get, and I am in the process of getting rid of it.

Are these random files names that have turned blue the work of a virus? Or do any of you know a reason why they did that. Should I delete them? Is there something I'm sapposed to do?

Thanks in advance :tazz:

This is normal if you have the checkbox for 'Show encrypted or compressed NTFS files in color' checked in VIEW tab in Folder Options. Go into the CONTROL PANEL and double click on Folder Options to access this window.
